LTF Posted March 18, 2010 Report Share Posted March 18, 2010 Hi,I have uTorrent set to put completed downloads in a directory that is shared on the network, so that I can immediately access the files over the network. They go into the root directory of that shared directory, not some sub-directory of the share.When files finish downloading they don't seem to have the correct file permissions (presumably as defined by the shared parent directory) so that when I access them over the network I get 'Access Denied'. If I then copy the files to another directory that is shared (either a sub-directory of the folder where they are placed on completion, or a whole other directory that is shared) then everything works fine - the act of moving them seems to fix the permissions, even if it's just from SharedCompletedDir\ to SharedCompletedDir\Sub\. (I'm talking about dragging the files in Windows Explorer by the way, not some kind of script or DOS command)I'm using XP on both machines, and Simple File Sharing. I doubt it's important but for full info, I started running this install (a year or so ago) with Simple File Sharing turned off, and later turned it on.I've been noticing this since uTorrent 1.7.2. I should have posted something a while back but I figured it had already been noted. My guess is that either the files are given standard permissions, or permissions that match the download directory rather than the completed directory, and none of those include permissions to share across the network. I'm not sure, though now I type this it suggests that I should try sharing the download directory and see if it makes a difference... Er, if I get a chance to try that I'll post back with results.I really hope you can fix this, it's finally getting to me after years of working around it.Thanks for a great app. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
